    Walt Disney World has finally reopened its popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction — minus the controversial “Bride Auction” sequence. The scene, which appeared in the “Pirates” rides at Disney World, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris, had originally depicted a group of women bound to an auction block, with a banner reading “Auction: Take a wench for a bride” hanging above their heads. A group of nearby pirates could also be heard requesting the redheaded “wench,” who was the most prominently displayed woman on the block. As of the ride’s reopening on March 19, however, the whole scene has been...

    omedian Owen Benjamin is a rising star in the battle for free speech and common sense. Using comedy as a weapon against left wing thought control, Benjamin has faced major criticism in the entertainment industry. In fact, SJWs in Hollywood have called for him to be blackballed because he dared to say that injecting hormones into 3 year old children to “transition” them into another gender is wrong. “The Big Bear,” as his online fans “The Unbearables” call Benjamin, is known for immediately adding jokes about current events into his stand up sets. So it’s no surprise that last weekend...

    National Geographic acknowledged on Monday that it covered the world through a racist lens for generations, with its magazine portrayals of bare-breasted women and naive brown-skinned tribesmen as savage, unsophisticated and unintelligent. "We had to own our story to move beyond it," editor-in-chief Susan Goldberg told The Associated Press in an interview about the yellow-bordered magazine's April issue, which is devoted to race.

    February 1. Foreign Office officials invited 1,800 female staff members to wear Islamic headscarves to mark World Hijab Day. The department gave away taxpayer-funded headscarves, claiming they symbolized "liberation, respect and security." Critics, citing the compulsory veiling of women in Islamic countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, said the garment is a symbol of male oppression. Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said, "I'd like to know whose bright idea this was. It is ridiculous, a complete waste of taxpayers' money and not the business of a government department. I can't see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out...

    Spectator ^ | 6 March 2018 | Greg Jones
    Before the blood had dried at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the left started its familiar blame game. . . snip Now, some three weeks later, it’s quite clear that the blame for the massacre in Parkland lay not primarily with the AR-15 or those that advocate for its existence, but rather with the left’s dangerous obsession with political correctness. . . snip As David B. Kopel points out at Reason, Parkland wasn’t the first time the left’s preference for political correctness over the enforcement of existing safeguards has enabled mass shooters; in fact, the event that...

    General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, was apparently the second coming of Patton, a real world walking, talking version of Frederick the Great’s maxim, “L’Audace, L’Audace, Toujours L’Audace”, a well-read grunt who spit napalm and ingested cut glass, a Marine who made Dan Daly and Chesty Puller look like campus snowflakes. During more than 30 years on active duty as a gyrene, the Mad Dog said many classic statements, but these were some of his favorites: ‘It’s quite fun to shoot them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people.’ In 2005, he offered this...

    A 2015 Pew survey reported that the total number of Catholics in the United States dropped by 3 million since 2007, now comprising about 20 percent - or one-fifth - of the total population. Catholicism is losing more members than it gains at a higher rate than any other denomination – a recent development which the radical progressives at Salon celebrate. Why is this an issue that should worry Americans and the Western world at large? One key reason is that the fastest-growing religion in the country and around the world is Islam – something Salon radicals also no...

    The defense of free speech has always been a bedrock bipartisan principle. So it’s unusual to hear a veteran liberal politician excuse campus outrage squads that shout down dissent. But that’s exactly what former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean did in a recent appearance.. Dean’s take on this was that there are “consequences to free speech.” He caricatured Erika Christakis’s thoughtful, sensitive letter as an ugly screed mocking “snowflake” students and defending racist costumes. He also described the protesters as well-behaved, despite their screaming and bullying. ... Dean is hardly alone...progressives on and off campus are...
  • Trudeau Corrects Questioner: ‘Peoplekind’ Is ‘More Inclusive’ Than ‘Mankind’

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave his fellow countrymen a lesson on gender inclusivity in language at a public town hall Friday. Trudeau took a question about religious nonprofits from a woman affiliated with the World Mission Society Church of God. Canadian regulations place restrictions on volunteering with religious organizations, and the woman asked whether the government could loosen those regulations, as she discussed her church’s theology of God’s maternal love. "So, that’s why we came here today to ask you, to also look into the policies that religious charitable organizations have in our legislation so that it can also...

    Major League Baseball says the Cleveland Indians will stop using the Chief Wahoo logo on their uniforms starting in the 2019 season. The league says the logo, which features a smiling Native American, is not appropriate for field use. It has had discussions with the Indians in hopes that the franchise move away from the logo, which had been used in some capacity for the franchise since the 1947 season and was still prevalent on the team's baseball caps and on its uniforms. "Major League Baseball is committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout the game,” MLB...

    Commenting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating President Trump for alleged "collusion" with Russia, Judicial Watch said that, as FBI director under President Obama, Mueller purged the Bureau of all anti-terrorism training material that was deemed "offensive" to Muslims. This was done, said Judicial Watch, "after secret meetings between Islamic organizations and the FBI chief." Judicial Watch obtained the documents on Mueller and the Muslim groups after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the FBI in July 2012. Mueller had met with the Muslims groups on Feb. 8, 2012, after which the curricula purge took...

    It’s taken me a while to craft a concise wrap-up to this little series. I’ve realised via the responses to my previous articles that the typical XYZ reader is well-versed in the machinations of the loony left, so I’ve been asking myself “who am I writing these for?”. Bringing it back to my original question, I suppose it has always been a slightly selfish conceit – someone once said writing is therapeutic, and forcing myself to read, research and write these has been its own therapy. Truth be told, I never intended to write 10,000 words on anything in particular,...

    San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to remove Christopher Columbus’ name from his commemorative day in October, and instead honor the indigenous people living in California long before it was discovered by European explorers. The 10-1 vote on the resolution sponsored by Supervisor Malia Cohen elicited cheers and jeers in the board chambers. It came after the board rejected Supervisor Aaron Peskin’s request that it be delayed. Peskin, the lone dissenter, said he had been snowed with emails from Italian Americans in his district, which includes North Beach — home of Columbus Avenue. Many of them mark Columbus day...

    A Georgia State University soccer player who was suspended from the team after she used a racial epithet on social media has withdrawn from the school, officials said. Some students had called for the expulsion of 18-year-old freshman defender Natalia Martinez after the epithet appeared on her Finsta page, a secret version of Instagram that is growing in popularity among teens. “As a progressive, diverse university, we ... feel like this sort of behavior should not be tolerated,” said India Bridgeforth, who created a petition demanding the university take a tougher approach with Martinez. The petition had garnered more than...

    Those of you (most of you) who haven't been watching the new Star Trek series, Star Trek Discovery, are missing out on a entirely new level of political correctness. The show features a black female protagonist named Michael; her boyfriend, a Klingon disguised as a Muslim-Arab security officer; an obese female cadet who is a genius in all areas of science; and a gay couple, one of whom is black and possibly also hispanic. But that isn't enough for SJWs. They actually worry that the black gay character, who is also hispanic, is not visibly hispanic.

    Google employees are creating their own enclave of mandatory wokeness, but they're not content to keep this ideological policing within their own walls. Back in the day, Google famously adopted the corporate motto, “Don’t be evil.” It hasn’t turned out so well. The problem is that their motto didn’t define what constitutes evil, so it left an opening for narrow-minded zealots to commandeer company resources in a witch hunt against whatever they define as the forces of wickedness. That’s what has happened at Google, which has adopted a corporate culture of quasi-totalitarian ideological uniformity that it is now starting to...
